Career information for Teachers


At Queensbury, we endeavour to raise the aspirations of our students while developing their employability skills for them to move on to the career and life they want. We develop these skills during our lessons including Life skills lessons.

During lessons, students will have the opportunity to develop their understanding of:

1. Personal Identity (their personal qualities, attitudes, skills, attributes and achievements and what influences these; understanding and maintaining boundaries around their personal privacy, including online)

2. Healthy Relationships (including different types and in different settings, including online and the importance of consent)

3. A healthy balanced lifestyle including physical, emotional and social health (including within relationships, work-life, exercise and rest, spending and saving and lifestyle choices)

4. Risk (identification, assessment and how to manage risk, rather than simply the avoidance of risk for self and others) and safety (including behaviour and strategies to employ in different settings, including online in an increasingly connected world

5. Diversity, equality and rights (in all its forms, with due regard to the protected characteristics set out in the Equality Act 2010), responsibilities (including justice) and consent (in different contexts)

6. Change (as something to be managed) and resilience (the skills, strategies and ‘inner resources’ we can draw on when faced with challenging change or circumstance)

8. Negative Relationship behaviour (how it is used and encountered in a variety of contexts including online; how it manifests through behaviours including bullying, persuasion, coercion and how it can be challenged or managed through negotiation and ‘win-win’ outcomes)

9. Enterprise and Employability (including economic understanding, interview skills and the changing jobs market)
